Above the white cliffs of our beach the Greek city of Eraclea Minoa was situated. There is not much left of it.
The small amphitheater is protected by a roof of plexiglas.
There are a few excavations but there is not much to see. The main attraction is the magnificent view.
Further south is a grand natural monument, the “Scala dei Turchi”, the Turkish stairs. Stairs because the giant steps remind on a gigantic staircase, Turks because pirates (Turks) are said to be landed here. Nowadays the sparkling white lime stone formation quite often is used for fashion pictures.
